  • As close to paradise as possible

    "Our family ritual is to go someplace warm over winter break. Our dear departed grandmother started this practice many years ago and we have diligently carried it forward. We have been to Hawaii, (a couple of times) California, and gone on a couple of cruises. (not the children's favorite) We have never ventured outside of the U.S. on our own but decided to give Belize a try. We are very glad we did. To start with the house was great. As shown and as described on the web site, although; we think the owners could have done a bit more bragging about the sleeping arrangements as the beds were very comfortable, something we don't usually find in rental houses. Yvonne was very helpful with pre-trip information. She even sent us very detailed driving directions from Belize City to the house including points of interest along the route. (rest areas, gas stops, places to grab a bite to eat, etc.) Lus (the house care taker) deserves a pat on the back as our plane was delayed a few hours coming in but she was at the house with a big smile to greet us on our arrival. She was also available during the week if needed but not a snooper, a troubling experience we have had in the past. The weather could not have been better. It rained a few times during the night but the days were sunny and warm. (85º to 90º) Just what us northerners needed. We didn't even find it necessary to use the A/C as the breeze off the ocean was more than enough to cool things down at night. We did a few touristy things but it was just as much fun to hang out at the house, swim in the pool or ocean and cook up some steaks on the outdoor grille. We would highly recommend Seabreezevilla if you are in search of an excellent vacation."

  • A Marvelous Week!

    "Our week-long stay at Casa Laguna Vista was marvelous as was our time in the wonderful little country of Belize. We totally enjoyed the lovely house with all of its amenities. Everything was as advertised. The home is "like new" and very well appointed. We were very comfortable and enjoyed the kitchen very much. The front and back porches were much used. We definitely plan to return to Belize and again make Casa Laguna Vista our base for sightseeing."

  • Family Vacation

    "Could not have been better. Karen and staff helpful and friendly. Swam each day off pier. Kayaks were fun and when we when we traveled way to far (all the way into town!) Karen sent the truck to pick us up. Safe. Secure. Tons of fun. 5 adults and we had tons of space and lots to do and see. Local food good and safe to eat. Women selling fresh bread in the evening in town--sweet bread the best. Fruit and veggie truck comes outside gate each Thurs afternoon with bargain prices. Watch the sunrise each am and wondered across the street to watch sunset in the evening. Belize Zoo very fun stop. Fish market in town is hidden so ask locals. "John the Bakerman" is a must for local tarts and yummy banana bread. Donna at the pier in Placencia (I think it is Night Winds Tours) has good prices. Enjoy!"

  • Paradise

    "We spent a blissful week at the villa. From the moment we pulled in and saw the ocean through the breezeway and the gorgeous house, we were sold! Stan and Mary were very attentive and helpful both before and during our stay. The villa is spectacular, immaculate and quiet. The grounds are beautifully kept and the beach is serene and maintained daily. The groundskeeper/housekeepers were extremely helpful and thorough. They even opened coconuts from the trees for us! The house itself is gorgeous, clean, very comfortable and very well stocked. It would be great for a large group or family but it was still perfect for just the four if us. We found the area to be central for allot of day trips sightseeing and we loved being close to the stores/restaurants in the village. Best weeks vacation and we can still close our eyes and feel the ocean breeze blowing through the house while we sipped on a drink...fabulous! We would love to be back again sometime."

Placencia’s primary attraction is the barrier reef that runs the length of Belize. The second-largest barrier reef in the world, it has spectacular dive sites and is an amazing natural phenomenon. Underwater canyons, walls and coral bommies are home to host of reef fish and marine creatures.

Sailing is a great eco-friendly way to explore the coastline near Placencia. Cruise charters can take you to snorkel on the reefs and explore secluded beaches and cays. Sit back and relax with a cocktail and enjoy cruising the calm tropical waters.

About a half-hour from Placencia is the small village of Monkey River. From there, you can take a leisurely trip upriver spotting wildlife along the way. If you’re fortunate, you could see the shy manatees, green iguana, boa constrictors, crocodiles and wild deer. The local guides are extremely knowledgeable and provide an entertaining narration during the tour. The bird life is abundant and occasionally you can hear the monkeys in the trees above.

To see the Mayan Ruins at Lubaantun and Nim Li Punit, you will need to join a full-day excursion. On it, you can see the partially excavated sites and hear about the ancient mythology from the local guides. It’s an eerie and enchanting experience.

The Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary is about an hour from Placencia. It is the world’s first jaguar sanctuary. Although sightings are rare, touring the sanctuary is still a wonderful experience as you get to see many unique species of plants, animals and birds.

What to Take with You When Staying at Placencia Peninsula Villas

Since it is a tropical destination, you can afford to pack quite light. The essentials are good sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, comfortable shoes and your swimsuit. In general, the clothing is quite casual. Lightweight cotton shirts, shorts and skirts are most suitable for the climate. If you are planning on doing some nature walks or excursions, make sure you have a comfortable pair of walking shoes. Insect repellant is another essential. It’s advisable to wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants at night and on jungle tours to avoid getting bitten by mosquitoes. Leave valuables such as expensive jewelry at home. If you are keen photographer, pack an extra memory card as you are likely to take loads of photos.

When to Visit Belize Vacation Rentals

The summer months are somewhat dryer and run from December to April. The most popular travel period is between December and February which coincides with the dryer weather.
